Schumer Calls for Renewal of Tax Credit

New York Senator Charles Schumer was in Plattsburgh Thursday afternoon, calling for the renewal of a tax credit for businesses that hire veterans.

New York’s senior Senator stopped by Bombardier Transportation in Plattsburgh, a manufacturer of rail cars, to tour the plant and discuss the importance of extending the “Returning Heroes and Wounded Warriors Tax Credit”.   Schumer says Congressional gridlock is stalling the tax credit’s renewal.

The  plant in Plattsburgh employees 411 people, 50 are veterans. Plant officials  would like the credit renewed to be able to hire more veterans
